    It's not clear to me if you want your Android device to provide the Internet connection. If so, you would have to do the following:
    1) Put your Android phone into Hotspot mode (WiFi tethering in infrastructure mode) so that it essentiallly becomes your WiFi Internet Gateway.
    2) Put your router into repeater mode and repeat your Android device's Internet connection.
    3) Connect your Xbox to your router either by WiFi or Ethernet.

    I can do this because my phone has Hotspot capability and my router has repeater capability (thanks to the DD-WRT firmware that I loaded onto it). If your router doesn't have repeater capability, you may be able to load DD-WRT (or Tomato) open source firmware onto your router.

    Note that your ability to tether is dependent on your contract with your carrier/service provider. Some providers allow you to tether for free, where as you have to pay with others.
